ABC Spanish Tuition and Homestay Reviews
5 days studying in La Paz
Submitted by Joss Ward - Cambridge England | June 14, 2018
William met us on our first day at our hostel and took us to his house where we were greeted by his lovely wife and kids.
We spent 5 days at his house and did 20 hours of lessons. (4 hours a day, every morning 8.30-12.30).
William was extremely accommodating and was happy to work around whatever schedule suited us.
He tailor made a plan to suit our learning needs and was happy to adjust his teaching depending on what we wished to study.
His knowledge of La Paz in general is superb for tourists and his recommendations for places to eat/drink and spots to visit were great.
William speaks exceptional English (he is practically fluent) making the teaching far easier for both of us.
Alongside his fantastic teaching and his great advice on what to see in La Paz, his wife cooked us an amazing breakfast every morning and the family made us feel very welcome in their home.
I cannot praise him higher, we learnt so much in our week with him, and now feel far more comfortable when conversing in Spanish.
With William as your teacher you are guaranteed to improve your Spanish immeasurably!
5 days of lessons

The week studying and living with William and his family was excellent, we were welcomed into the home immediately and from breakfast to the teaching and the accommodation, everything was well organised and enjoyable.
I would highly recommend this course if you are looking for a relaxed, good quality Spanish course where you will improve your Spanish greatly and get to know a fantastic Bolivian family.
Muchas Gracias Por Todo

During my 4 month of traveling in south america I was not only interested in experiencing different cultures but also in improving my Spanish. I definitely will never forget the two weeks I stayed with William and his family. During the week I had 4 hours of Spanish course with William every day. William really knows the Spanish language & its grammar and has great way to teach it. Furthermore, his english is really good as well! Besides the lessons I enjoyed the time with his lovely family: Going to the local fair, karaoke or just having tea, talking and watching tv. Moreover, his wife Laeticia is a great chef and I really enjoyed her delicious Bolivian dishes every time when she cooked. I would definitely do this homestay program again if I was in La Paz. Muchas gracias por todo!
Thank you William!

My friend and I did four days with William, four hours of lessons each day. It was amazing! He gave us anything and everything we needed, his material is easy to understand, and his knowledge of both English and Spanish is extensive. He had a real passion for teaching, and taught us exactly what we wanted to and needed to know for our travels. His family are beautiful and his pets are the best! Thank you William for making La Paz one of our favourite cities in South America!
Great experiential Spanish education
Submitted by Grace Bowling - Ashville United States | May 03, 2016
I studied with William for more than four months during my stay in La Paz. Now, I am now confident and comfortable speaking with just about anyone. I even speak Spanish in my sleep sometimes! Lessons with William consist of intensive and detailed grammar review, conversational speaking practice, writing, speaking, and listening activities, and everyday-skill practice for moving around in La Paz, as well as introduction to vocabulary (William has INCREDIBLE knowledge of vocabulary and their EXACT translations in English). I now have a fundamental understanding of language, leading me to understand mechanics of English that had never crossed my mind. During my time studying with William, I got to know his lovely family and would often stay late chatting with his wife. Studying with William is not just a mechanical education, it's an experiential education. He was a great resource for any questions I had about Bolivia, La Paz, transportation methods, colloquial phrases, and much, much, more. I highly recommend William and ABC Spanish Tuition for anyone excited and committed to learning Spanish!
